“Probate” literally means “to prove.” The proof of David’s experience and abilities in Probate Law is demonstrated by the Probate Court appointing him as a successor fiduciary in countless and complicated probate and equity matters to organize and resolve over the past 19 years.
After a loved one has passed away, David has administered or assisted surviving family members in administering several estates through the Probate Court: marshaling and inventorying estate assets; payment of last bills; filing of relevant tax returns; accounting and distribution of estate assets.
Adults with physical, mental, and/or developmental disabilities may need the protection of guardians and conservators to address their physical, medical, and economic concerns. David can assist families in ensuring that the right powers are in place to protect those individuals.
Sometimes parents of minor children are unable or unavailable to care for their children. David can help assist close relatives and friends wanting to take on the responsibility of caring for these children as their guardians.
When litigation is necessary in the Probate realm, David is prepared for contested guardianships of children and incapacitated adults, will contests, probate fiduciary removal, trust disputes. Whether an Essex County probate matter or elsewhere throughout the metro Boston area, David Eppley brings compassionate, ethical, and zealous advocacy for his probate clients.
